Agad Agad... Di Ba Pwedeng...

Filipinos have developed another manner of justifying things these days, not to mention the wide influence of media propagating this expression all over this crazy expression hooked country.

When I uploaded my pictures taken at my growing cactus terrarium, a friend of mine commented that I am not only a teacher, but also a botanist. Rather than feel complimented, I knew it was an overstatement, so I replied in a form of this two question expression:

Botanist agad agad? Di ba pwedeng gardener lang muna?

AGAD AGAD... is an expression usually suffixed to the first question sentence, which roughly means right away or instantly. DI BA PWEDENG... is another expression prefixed on the second question that means "can something or someone not be" for a while or for now.

The expression is usually made as a reply to an exaggerated comment. For instance, in my case, I am only fond of plants but someone said that I can pass off a botanist. As a funny reply using the expression, I said: Do I look like botanist right away? Can I be a gardener for now?

This expression has evolved from a simple way of reasoning to rude, funny, witty and even sweet. Here are some other comments I heard and searched around using the expression. Credit to the websites.
